Here is what I would change.
1) the cpu cooler to one from Noctua. They cool about as well or better than some closed loop water coolers. A Noctua NH-U14S would serve you well http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=82802&vpn=NH-U14S&manufacture=Noctua,
or pick another Noctua cooler from here http://us.ncix.com/products/?manufactureid=3624&minorcatid=1023&activetab=Vendor
2) Change the SSD to one from Samsung or a Crucial M500
3) update your graphics card to one 770 or 780 , no SLI latency issue that way. And since you wanna spend about $550 on graphics, that would be a better solution.
4) maybe surf the web and find a case you like, maybe something from Bit fenix, Corsair, Coolermaster or NZXT? Just find something you like. I like cases with lots of fan mounts for improved cooling. Running a Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 at the moment.
5) Change the PSU to an 850W psu from Seasonic (the X series or the Platinum series) or Corsair (RM, AX,AXi or HX). They both make real high quality and solid psus. I run a Seasonic X-series 850W in my machine and it has been solid, and the modular cables make wiring components and cable management real easy. You just use the power cables that you need. Seasonic psus come in a velvet cloth case too, a nice touch.
As you are a first time builder watch some build videos on how to build. Here is one from newegg. Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPIXAtNGGCw

And be careful overclocking, run stuff at stock clocks at first for a month or so just to make sure it works and monitor the temperatures with Gpu-z and hardware monitor if you do overclock. Also note overclocking voids your warranty, if that matter to you.http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
